Teachers may be our most unappreciated heroes! When we consider the people who have had the most impact on our lives, teachers are always among the first to leap to mind. Parents are our first educators but that role is quickly augmented by those who are fully dedicated professionally to the stewardship of molding our lives, guiding us, encouraging us, and inspiring us to be the best we can be.
In a society where the family experiences severe stress, strain, and brokenness, teachers serve as role models, social workers and much more. They help us build self-esteem, discover and pursue our passions, and conquer challenges. They teach us to learn from our mistakes and to keep striving, to keep growing.
This week we affirm all teachers by recognizing their significant contributions and sacrifices. Yes, it’s National Teacher Appreciation Week. Let’s use this time as an opportunity to thank a teacher today by whatever means possible.
